The Bible speaks about two different kinds of fear. There is a fear that God commands and a fear that God forbids, a fear the builds you up and a fear that tears you down, a fear to gain and a fear to lose. There is a fear that Christ brings and a fear that Christ relieves. The fear that you want to gain is what the Bible calls “the fear of the Lord.” The fear that you want to lose is the fear of anything and anyone else.
